Last summer Mum & I went on a holiday to Cape Verde for a week. We stayed on the island called Boa Vista (Cape Verde is a country made up of a collection of islands). The island is basically one huge, dry, hot desert with palm trees sprinkled across it. We stayed at the RUI Karamboa Hotel & Resort, which was an enormous, sprawling hotel with nothing but sand dunes and sea surrounding it.
The hotel was directly on the beach, which I will admit was only full of tourists - no local people to be found!
The hotel decorations were inspired by the local culture, with lots of sculptures, colourful patterns and wood throughout.
We were pretty tired after a long day travelling - and very much looking forward to a relaxing week by the pool!
